When it comes to pet food, Amazon and Walmart are two of the most popular e-commerce sites. To find out which dog food is the top seller, we analyzed last year's sales rankings from both sites. The results revealed that ORIJEN's original grain-free recipe is the number one selling dry food for active, high-energy dogs. This high-protein dry dog food contains no poultry ingredients, making it a great choice for puppies with chicken sensitivities.
Merrick's sweet potato and chicken recipe is also a top seller, as it is made with real meat and whole fruits and vegetables. WholeHearted's grain-free beef recipe is another popular choice, as it provides balanced nutrition for all stages of life and contains omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins, and antioxidants. Royal Canin is also a top seller, as it is the preferred choice of many veterinarians and offers a variety of recipes designed to meet the diverse needs of dogs. When choosing a dog food, you should consider your pup's unique health needs.
If your pup has a sensitive stomach, look for a food that does not contain corn, wheat or grains. If your pup needs extra nutrition, look for a food that contains canine probiotics to support the digestive system or “Life Bits” to boost flavor with DHA, glucosamine and chondroitin. You may also want to consider a raw diet, which consists of only meat, bones, fruits, vegetables, raw eggs, and yogurt or other uncooked dairy products. No matter what type of dog food you choose, make sure it meets or exceeds the nutrient profiles and manufacturing guidelines of the AAFCO and the World Association of Small Animal Veterinarians (WSAVA).
Additionally, be aware that the FDA is currently investigating a possible link between grain-free diets and non-hereditary dilated cardiomyopathy in dogs.
